Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: 'The Greatest American Rock Band'?

An alternative claim for this title would involve a band that cut their teeth on Chuck Berry and Little Richard numbers, lifted a harmony style from the Everly Brothers, and were heavily influenced by Tamla Motown. Add in some Carl Perkins Rockabilly and Buck Owens Country music, refresh with a touch of Brian Wilson and you have a contender.

Ladies and Gentlemen - I give you The Beatles.

(Couldn't think of a Blues influence that would add to their claim, but I expect one could be found.)
